on the extremities. i am surprised i thought that he would be shy to use the word ban just in the man's demeanor and so i am surprised. >> my cut reaction initially is it seems quite restrictive sort of a little bit over powering to me. the initial reaction that we could possibly get the same desires and results and that combination of more enforcement and you know, a strong application of the cu process. >> yes, so as i mentioned, the article was not to diminish the night life on the polk street corridor. we feel like the vibrantcy is important to the residents and obviously to the existing businesses that are already there and we want to make sure that we are protected and like i said we are very open to working with the planning department and exploring what an appropriate density control alternative would be. and looking at whether that is 100, or 200 square feet and what that would mean for the neighborhood. >> okay. any other commissioner comments before we open it up to public comment? okay, let's have public comment on item number 6. is there anybody who would like to make public comment
. commissioners? >> i also think that the proximity limit is going to be just as useful as the total ban. i sympathize in terms of, we need to, you know, think about daytime use, and that balance, and if there is an overwhelming amount of night-time businesses only. we do need to have a balance that helps keep it lively during the daytime also. also, in terms of cus, you know, let's face it, we just don't have any enforcement. you know, we are just under budgeted and we just don't have it. so, i would agree with my other commissioners that a proximity ban would be appropriate and a less let's droconian and would i think, achieve that balance. >> commissioner riley? >> yes, i agree. and i think that the objective is to make sure that we provide the opportunity for other businesses coming in to the proximity controls would be able to accomplish that. once you pass the ban, i assume that it would take a long time and a lot of process in order to lift the ban. is that right? >> i also heard the legislative aid right there that they are willing to go back and also talk to the planning department
